Simply Jesus

This is my new Taylored Expressions kit that I just got in the mail. I love the sentiments. They are absolutely perfect and capture the TRUE meaning of Christmas -- simply Jesus. Love it. And I can't wait to make millions (okay maybe not quite...) of Christmas cards with this beautiful set!

You may be wondering why my cards look similar to each other lately (same paper,
ribbon, stamps, etc...) Well, it's kind of a personal challenge. When I use a piece of paper, instead of putting half of it into the scrap pile, never to see it again, I am trying to use it up. Which means more cards! And I now have another challenge -- to make 50 projects before I buy anything new! Yikes! My friends Martha and Rachel are challenging themselves to do 100! I have to start small though...and it's hard because I heard there's a good sale at Michael's this week. Oh and guess what? I'm going to a used stamp sale this weekend in Kansas City. So I better make 50 projects and QUICK!! So here's my second card, using the same patterned paper as the card above. I love how cute and sparkly this turned out! And the sentiment is again, just perfect! May your Christmas be a time to reflect on the simplicity of His birth and the magnitude of His purpose. It says it perfectly.Finished card size is sqaure, 4 1/4" inches
And here's a close up of the shimmerz, can you see it??

  2. I love this two cards Katy! They're both beautiful. Good luck with your goal to make 50 projects...the used stamp sale would probably be just too tempting for me!
